Tines, I was humorously asking for sources on that.

It came up on khara's twitter: 庵野家の愛猫の正しい名前は「庵野マイティジャック」です
http://twitter.com/#!/khara_inc/status/109648760220565504
Also I know nothing about Mighty Jack but apparently the flying submarine itself is named Mighty Go.

Now what's this about a child?:uhh:

EDIT: this is not about Anno and his baby, but Anno and his wife, who (bizarrely) draws herself as a baby.

As Carl Horn points out there the baby in that comic is Moyocco's signature self portrait. Here's a figure version of the charming couple

Tatsuya Ishii has a radio show himself? Interesting... In karaoke I still sing his songs from his "Kome Kome Club" days 20 years ago.

What they talked about the cat :

- The name is Anno Mighty Jack
- It is a fat brown tabby
- Anno has kept it for 6 years
- It was a stray cat picked up by his friend
- It would say "gohan" (meal) when it is time for meal (according to Anno)
- It has good manner and will not touch human food itself
I never thought I would come back to Evangelion after EoE,
But I discovered Re-Take (or it found me?) and
now here I am.

Don't worry, he's probably wearing jean shorts under the table

`I:` You know Eva's face shows up before Shinji in the first episode, right? That made me happy...it was like, "That's "Con-V!"


I'm wondering what this sentence is getting at.
Shinji is shown first in episode one, before the Eva is even seen.

Are they using "before" in the sense of "in front of"? Having Shinji be at-level with the Eva's face, instead of having Shinji at the Eva's feet, is that what they're praising?

If so, darn - I was hoping it'd be a hidden Eva 1 in the intro sequence. :(
In and of itself, self-evident.

When I looked, I couldn't figure out what 'Con-V' was supposed to be, so I assumed he must mean the Eva face shows up in the intro before we meet Shinji. I guess not...

They're talking about this scene from the first episode of Combattler V:

Image
Where all the pilots have been gathered (while the big bad guy is outside laying waste to the city), put into a dark room, then the lights come on revealing the big robot at face level. They're praising Combattler V here, nothing to do with Shinji or Eva. Chizuru is the grand daughter of the white haired guy in the scene and the 4th pilot.

But at least we know where Anno gets the inspiration for Evangelion's "Shinji meets Eva for the first time" scene.

But yes, thanks for hunting down the image of the Combattler scene, and taking the time to explain it!
